Entry will open on the 51X MOSS site from mid Nov 17. Through the development of the Tri Service Scottish Sports Board, ExSL is open to all Tri-Service Members across 51st Inf Bde & HQ Scotland, AOR (Tri Service members include: Reservists, UOTC, ACF/CCF and Regular Forces).
Team Compositions. Team compositions for both Alpine and Snowboarding are 4 per unit with 3 to count. Units may enter male, female or mixed teams. If teams are of mixed Regular and Reserves, they are only eligible to compete for prizes in one of those categories based on the majority of that team.
The aim of ExSL is to allow personnel to experience ski racing in Scotland and to provide an opportunity to introduce novice skiers to low level racing.
